Hoshyar joins the world in grieving for the innocent children who lost their lives, the teachers who tried to protect them, and the families whose pain is unimaginable.
We condemn those who value life so little and prey on the weak.
This senseless tragedy defeats our understanding. We take heart nonetheless from past efforts to bring education to ever more children. We look to the day when every child has learned how to think and recognize the humanity in others.
We recommit ourselves to the goal of free education for every child in a safe and nurturing environment.
